Dear Trump: Americans Can’t Survive for 10 Weeks on $1200

Target: President Trump and Steve Mnuchin, Secretary of the Treasury

Goal: Help American families avoid poverty and homelessness by providing a larger stimulus in the wake of COVID-19.

Donald Trump’s Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin says that Americans will be able to survive for 10 weeks on the $1200 stimulus checks being sent out. For many Americans, this would barely cover one month’s rent, let alone two-and-a-half months of other expenses.

This out-of-touch delusion about how much it costs to survive in the United States of America is absurd for any politician, but especially for one whose job is to be in charge of money. Sign our petition to tell Steve Mnuchin that no American can pay their bills for 10 weeks on only $1200.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Donald Trump and Steve Mnuchin,

The idea that Americans can survive on $1200 for 10 weeks is insane. For most Americans, this wouldn’t even be enough to survive for one month, let alone two-and-a-half. For many of us, this will barely cover a month’s rent, let alone other expenses like the healthcare many are doing without, as well as food and utilities. A stimulus of $1200 every 10 weeks would be equivalent to about half of the national poverty guideline, an amount that itself is already far too low to survive on.

Your administration seems to care most of all about the economy. If you want the economy to do better, put more money in the hands of struggling Americans who will definitely spend that money and boost the economy. Bailing out working class Americans should be the administration’s priority, not major corporations. Give Americans a bigger stimulus, and more often, or the economy will only get worse.

Sincerely,

[ Your Name Here ]

    • YOU ARE SO MISINFORMED, IT’S PELOSI HOLDING THE PURSE STRINGS. ALL THE PRESIDENT CAN DO IS ASK FOR THE MONEY. BUT THAT ALCOHOLIC PELOSI ACTS LIKE IT’S HER MONEY. THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN HAVING TROUBLE GETTING THESE TIGHT WAD ASSHOLES TO GIVE THE MONEY, JUST LIKE THEY DIDN’T WANT TO GIVE HIM THE MONEY TO DEAL WITH THE BORDER CRISIS LAST YEAR WHICH THE DEMOCORRUPTS/LIBERALS/MEDIA KEPT CALLING A ‘MANUFACTURED’ CRISIS.

  1. Please God let it all work as OUR GOD would look at this to be as he meant for it to be…my Son Adam is a US Marine and we are all in this war together. And unfortunately the funds are much needed to get the economy back on track. Thanks…P.S. GOD BLESS US ALL

  2. Honestly I believe in your petition, but refuse to sign it. If you addressed Trump as President and Mnuchin as Secretary, you would have got my signature. Have some respect! For over three years you guys picked at his Presidency the entire time for the smallest bullshit. Now, when his Presidency should truly come under scrutiny you ruin that by bring the boy who cried wolf year after year. Everyone is at fault for today’s situation.
